Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

First Flurries

First Flurries

A Few Flurries in the Forecast…

This newest group gift from Tiffany Designs had me thinking about the holidays and the first possible flurries of snowfall… so I headed for a photogenic sim with snow in place to take my picture of it for you.

This is the Henry vintage suit and it comes in one piece for easy fitting. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Past Group Gifts Still Available!

If it looks familiar, it’s because Tiffany Design’s has put this fabulous suit out before as a group gift, except in a different color. In fact, there are currently four other group gifts out that you can pick up in addition to this suit shown above. You can preview three of the four here:

My hard earned trip to Fameshed early on had won me a fabulous shirt for men which I showed you HERE, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t neglect to mention this fabulous suit by Kauna that is also being given at the event as an anniversary gift FREE.

This suit is the full kit and caboodle and comes in fits for standard avatars as well as Slink and TMP. You’ll be getting the pants with attached belt, a waistcoat (not shown), the lavender shirt which comes in four versions (various tucked in and untucked versions, as well as different sleeve cuff versions), plus the jacket. The fit and movement of the suit is superb. You’ll need to join the FREE Fameshed group and stop by the Kauna booth and click the box to pick up this outstanding FREE gift. If you want to avoid the crowds, don’t stress, you’ll have until May 27th.

Casablanca Style

Casablanca Style

The Fame and Fortune Hunt… doesn’t cost a fortune. In fact, it’s a 1L hunt. And my 1L snagged me this pretty snazzy suit which I then used to tour the remake of Casablanca here in Second Life. The suit is pretty perfect for it.

This Garonga Men’s Suit created by Sparrow by Design comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is of an excellent cut. What really impressed me though was the textures. The one piece suit has a sheen on the pants that shimmers and changes in the light as your avatar moves. I’ve never actually seen anything quite like it on another men’s suit. All in all for 1L, this is not only flashy… it qualifies as old style Casablanca classy. It’s certainly not a modern suit, but it is stylish and well worth hunting down.

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

Welcome To Fantasy Island!

71415 tiffany 1

I always wanted to say that in my best, most romantic Spanish accent possible. For me growing up, Ricardo Montalbán was very cool, and when he greeted the guests on the TV show Fantasy Island with that iconic greeting, I realized nothing in the world was cooler than being a very rich man in a white suit. Oh yeah, the show had all kinds of mushy nonsense in it as well, but for me it’s the suit that I find unforgettable!

My memories of that show came flooding back when I saw what Tiffany Designs has put out as a group gift: this fantastic white suit! Now, it isn’t exactly the same suit as he wore in that tropical paradise, but it doesn’t matter. It is beautifully made and gives that same “I am so rich, I am going to order extra hot sauce on my chicken wings without giving it a second thought” kind of look. The Tiffany Designs Rey Mesh Formal Suit in white comes in two pieces: The upper (consisting of the white jacket, black shirt and dark red tie ) and the lower (the white suit pants). Each piece is offered in five sizes to help you get a good fit. If you click on the picture above and then click once more to zoom in, you can see it is nicely textured too. The suit is a FREE group gift, but Tiffany Designs will cost 50L to join. This outfit alone is worth that. The group gift will likely be changing this weekend so run there to pick this up as soon as possible and get ready to pick up another quality outfit in just a few more days. In real life, this kind of clothing wouldn’t last ten minutes on me without getting ruined in some random, yet entertaining, way. This is about fantasy though, and not practicality. So, chicken wings be damned! I finally have my fantasy summer suit!

Getting out of the summer sun, I couldn’t wait to show you a new hunt prize from the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt that just started two days ago. The Moon Willow Designs Ven Outfit in Tan is a stylish set consisting of an earth tones vest with a very detailed (but easy on the eyes) fabric texture and a tan shirt designed to be worn under it. The shirt looks sharp and is well textured, but carries the shadow of the vest on it, so that using it without the vest is unlikely. Taken as a unit though, both pieces look very nice together and would be a trendy choice to wear as the summer begins to wane and the nights grow cooler. The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt prizes cost only 1L, and the hunt object you are looking for is a rolled up scroll or map.

Lastly, I had to indulge in my Siamese cat fascination a moment. The coolest cats I ever shared space with were Siamese. The Kitty Shape Wear “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt has a cute cartoon featuring two of them on the front. As an experienced Siamese cat person, I can tell you most assuredly they are plotting something evil together. Still, when you look that good, a li’l bit of evil is entirely forgivable. The shirt is tan, comes in five sizes and is wide at the bottom to avoid conflicting with mesh jeans. Finding something to wear with it will be a breeze. The “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt is a 1L prize from the Cats Hunt and the hunt object you are looking for is a small paw print.

Well, I shall wave my farewell from my own personal Fantasy Island, where I stroll about unworried about getting catsup and mustard all over my dapper white suit. Maybe the time has come for me to begin the next phase of my life: the “Gentleman Cat Rancher” phase. Until I do, however, have fun and I’ll see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Midnight at Travellers

Traveller1_Final

Thanks everyone for helping with the midnight mania boards at Travellers! They finally locked down and I headed out to a jazz club in Downtown NYC to show off these two flashy suits. I think they both look stunning on the dance floor. Both suits come with the matching fedora and elegant shoes. Each one is on a midnight mania board and requires 50 slaps to lock down. You have to be in the Travellers group to slap them, but it’s free to join.

Traveller2_Final

My Ronnie Sunglasses are the new group gift at SF Design and features a menu where you can change the color of the frames and lenses. This group has a 100L fee to join, but there are new group gifts every month. My Etoile Noir earrings are a group gift from Chop Zuey and I love how the diamonds shimmer and sparkle. This group has a 350L fee to join, but there are 2 gifts available at a time and new ones are added more than once a month. In fact, if you want these earrings you better hurry before they are swapped out for a new gift!

Dany’s for men and Women

I picked up these outfits a while ago.. and they have sat in my inventory until now. They’re exactly my style too: olde-timey, Victorian, frilly. The dollarbies in Dany French Touch change rather frequently, but these lovely clothes were still available as of this post. Dany’s also has a lucky chair with outfits for both men and women.. and I love the blue outfit that is in the lucky chair right now.

danysWhile you’re there, take the time to explore the sim, it’s quite pretty and I understand they have homes available for lease.
